Introduced in 1947; Reissued in 1984
Designer: Isamu Noguchi, 1904-1988
- Noguchi's first furniture design was a rosewood and glass table designed for A. Conger Goodyear, president of the Museum of Modern Art from 1929 to 1939
- The IN50 is very similar to that first design with a freeform sculptural base and biomorphic glass top
- Noguchi believed that sculptures shouldn't be left in museums, they should be used and appreciated in everyday applications
- Originally offered in birch, walnut, or cherry
- The table balances sculptural form with everyday function beautifully and harmoniously
- It is an elegant embodiment of the concept that less is more
- Part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art
- Legs are two identical pieces of solid wood
- Legs are connected by a metal dowel that when assembled appear to have a free-flowing form
- Base is self-stabilizing and supports the heavy top without connectors
- For authenticity purposes, Isamu Noguchi's signature on the edge of the glass and a signature medallion on the bottom leg were added on 2003
- "Trade Dress" protection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which provides a powerful defense against the unauthorized manufacture, distribution, or the use of the design's likeness
